With our homes being the place where we feel comfortable on a daily basis, there is nothing better than going home after a long hard day to relax and enjoy your own space. It’s natural for us to do just that. We all want the best setups in our homes possible and technology has played a key part in this. As technology has developed so rapidly over the past couple of decades, we now find ourselves wanting to get the latest technology, integrating them directly and seamlessly into our homes. So much so, at times other people won’t even know it’s there.When you truly think about it, technology is now being integrated into rooms, spaces and even entire properties. Our bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens and bathrooms more are seeing the benefits on technologies being integrated throughout our homes.
If you ever find yourself lacking ideas of what technologies to integrate here are some awesome designs to show you what you’re missing out on.
Bespoke Hand-Crafted Technology Entertainment System
This is exactly what luxury interior designers in London can deliver! This beautiful hand-crafted entertainment system was built purposely for this lovely space. This full turnkey project was managed by SP3 London who delivered a full renovation of this 3-bedroom apartment in Knightsbridge. The entire north facing wall has been measured to perfection to carve and install this elegant entertainment system which embeds the main space TV, hidden speakers and lighting, which are all controlled from the same unit remote. So, you can come home, take a seat and feel comfortable and in control from the sofa.
The Love of The Coffee Machine
For the coffee lovers out there, that can’t start their day without their morning coffee. Coffee machines are now fully integrated technology appliances that can be implemented within kitchens. These new integrated small appliances take up as much space as a microwave and can be seamlessly integrated into our kitchens for simplicity and a minimalist look, leaving your worktop clear of this item at least.
Seamlessly Placed Refrigerators
Every kitchen requires a refrigeration unit and where things have changed throughout the years, fridges are becoming integrated seamlessly into the colour, design and shape of the room and units. This beautiful counter-depth refrigeration unit slides nicely into this custom design kitchen. Not only does it take up a large amount of space, but it does so quietly, with how accurately, it’s slotted into its own space.
Integrated home systems are becoming increasingly popular. They are technologies that can be simply integrated around our homes which tend to have more traditional heating system methods. Imagine being able to control your home heating from a more central thermostat system or even from your mobile. Nests heating system technology does just that and allows you to control your heating from wherever you are. Including from your mobile phone, so you can ensure the heating is on coming back home on a cold winter’s day. A classic example of game changing technology being integrated into our homes.
TV Hidden in Plain Sight
This beautiful hidden TV concept hides the TV in your space behind a piece of artwork. If you’re not an active TV watcher, it’s possible to still have one and not completely have it on show. This elegant design shows how to make great use of space, integrating the TV into a shelfing unit and hiding it behind remote controlled mechanical art work, that slides out of the way to enjoy your TV entertainment.
The Hidden TV Cabinet
This European walnut cabinet has been custom designed to embed the bedroom TV unit, so much so it hides away. This unit holds a 46-inch TV and the cabinet functionality has been built into the TV remote. Turning on the TV automatically raises the TV out of the cabinet with a custom-built mechanism.
In addition to these exciting ideas, there are many more technologies being custom designed and integrated into our homes which include:
- Entertainment Units
- Home Cinema
- Blinds and Curtains
As the interest in interior design increases rapidly, we’re becoming more and more creative with what we want in our homes; technology and custom designs are at the heart of it all. From the way I see it, most technologies can be integrated, you’ll just need someone willing to carrying out the custom designed job for you.
